I have a few thousand 162 ELD and 175 Bergers I bought in anticipation of a 7RM that I never purchased.

I have a lot of H1000 and RL23. Wondering how the barrel life is with loads on the lighter end with these slower powders vs max charges in a smaller cartridge for the same bullet. Aiming for 3kfps with a 175. Have been eyeing another bergara in 28 nosler, for hunting but also for long range target shooting.

Average life on a barrel for me has been 6-7 hundred rounds... I can't imagine you would get more than 1000 The cartridge is a hot rod .. Great for hunting.. Not so much for target shooting.. Even backed off it is a barrel burner.
Good luck amigo.
